I have been looking for a replacement for my beloved 89" Slick. The 93" Laser looked like a good replacement but I was a little concerned the DLE61 would not be enough to pull the vertical lines. Well I should not have been concerned. While the DLE 61 with Zoar 24X8 at 4200 feet will not rip the covering off of the airframe is has plenty of vertical. Using the pull-pull rudder system and putting 2x 2100mah Glacier LIFe packs against the firewall the balance was perfect. Hitec HS7955TG servos all around with Spektrum AR9110 reciever. The maiden was flawless and I got 4 flights today. What a great airframe! KE perfect! It tumbles like a wild-man. Hovering the airframe was rock solid and harrier had NO wing rock. There is no question in my mind the 93" Laser is more than a replacement for the Slick. Thanks to AJ and Tim. The call I received from Tim to tell me when the airframe was shipped was customer service of the highest level.

I'm going to be using a Jeti Master Mezon 135 Opto 12s ESC with my Hacker Q80-8M.

Could someone with experience with this setup tell me what, if any, settings I should change from the factory settings in the ESC?

Who's built this with the DA-70 and pipes? Any comments on cowl fitment or any other build aspects of the build worth mentioning? I'm almost done with my first gasser build and I have this one on my short list 9X wants.
